JK - did you have to fab some plastic to go around the sides? Isn't the stock trim just a little wider than DIN?

Hard to tell in the pic. I'm looking to put in a DD 7" DVD/Bluetooth head unit.

Sorry about the pic; it is hard to tell. But I did have to make a trim piece to go around the sides of the unit. The opening side to side is wider than a standard DD.

That pic looks great. I have a 99 Tahoe LT 4x4 and i am looking to get a double din stereo as well. I have found many i like just none to the size i need. I dont like the look of those motorized ones when the screen isnt out. Also i hear they have lots of problems with the motors goin out and stuff. Any help on how i can fit one. 3.93 is the common height of the stereos i am finding and im finding out that i have about 3.75 at max without moving heater controls. Done some research but im kinda stuck...any help?

JK,

Its good to see some people have been able to put double dins into the pre 03 Tahoe's. I have just bought a pioneer avic Z2 thinking my Tahoe had a double din.

Most local radio shops say they wont attempt to modify my dash, but I have found one that will do it, but they want to move my HVAC controls down to the middle console. I would really like to squeeze this thing in without doing that. Do you think it can be done? If not then looks like the HVAC controls will be going down b/c I really like the Z2

Some of you may have already seen this, but HERE is a link to the thread I started on installing a double din Pioneer D3 in my 01 Tahoe. The HVAC does not need to moved down. The instrument cluster bezel will need to be trimmed though and brackets fab'ed.

So does an 03 Tahoe require a double-din aftermarket radio...or will it fit a single din as well?
